...The California Constitution requires all judges to decide cases within 90 days after they have been fully submitted and argued. If a judge fails to do so, then he forfeits his salary. (See Article 6, Section 19 of the Constitution at this link.) They are required to regularly submit signed affidavits stating that everything is on track, so that their paycheck may be released.◼ Bigger story than false salary affidavit by Judge Wilson is failure to disclose that the D.A had requested his pay records, will this undo past rulings? - John Chiv/Words Worth
It is these affidavits, the commission says, that Wilson has fudged. While claiming that he had cleared all his cases on schedule, he had actually been late to various degrees — sometimes up to a month late.
Heavy workload is no excuse...
